Dunedin is located on the South Island of New Zealand and is on the pacific Ocean Coastline. The city has around 118,400 residents.

One of the largest factories in Dunedin is the Cadbury Factory which is close to the city centre. There are tours around the factory which are popular with tourists visiting Dunedin. Also in the city is The Meridian Mall which is a large shopping complex in Dunedin and is also the largest retail mall in the southern South Island.

Abels Moving Services can assist you when moving to Dunedin from the UK. We have been providing professional and discrete packing and international removal services for discerning families and professionals relocating and moving to Dunedin in New Zealand for over 50 years.

Abels Moving Services advises that Export Packing is a fundamental requirement for all your items and possessions when moving to Dunedin. Export Packing is a way of protecting items when in transit. It utilises either a 6 ply paper blanket that has a wax inner and a water resistant outer or tough bubble blanket that has a soft cloth inner and robust outer to ensure corners are not exposed. Certain items will need to be card covered, put into a carton or an additional layer of the above wrap to add extra protection for items such as polished furniture, antiques, delicate legs, mirror and glass fronted units.

The level of protection that is needed when moving items for example by road is less stringent but for moving your items travelling thousands of miles in either 20ft Containers or 40ft Containers on their sea journey to Dunedin then they will need additional Export Packing protection. Please remember that the goods will be “handled” many times including wrapping, loading the container, road journey to the port, container hoist removes and stacks, container hoist moves from the stack to the loading area near the vessel, loading the vessel crane gantry, sea journey and then the same in reverse. So the protection is paramount in ensuring the contents longevity when moving to Dunedin.
